A Miracle: I Could Breathe

(Note: This took place some years ago, before I understood about claiming. Now, I no longer get a cold or the flu.)

I had a horrible cold. It had entered into my lungs and made breathing difficult. Even all the over-the-counter medicines could not seem to make a dent in it.

One night during the worst of it, I was startled awake to see one of my angels, sitting at the base of the bed. I lay there, not quite awake, starring at her.

I had seen this angel before, concerning a healing. I think of her as a she because of her petite body, fine long hair, and soft voice, but please know; angels don’t have a sex. She says her name is spelled “Ade”, though it is pronounced “Aid”.

“Do not breathe in deep!” she instructed me.

I then realized that I had stopped breathing.

Of course, the moment she said not to do this, I wanted to.

She then told me to take very small breaths, almost like panting, till my lungs opened back up.

It was hard; I wanted to pull in the air quickly, for I was starting to feel a bit faint from the lack of it, but I did as Ade instructed. I could feel the resistance; my lungs had glued together while I slept. Panic attacked me. Slowly, my lungs peeled back open bit by bit, till I was able to get an average breath in. I then started coughing up all the mucus that was in my way, till I could breathe freely again.

When I finished my hacking, I looked back at the foot of the bed to see if the angel was still there, but she had already left. I knew the Lord had just saved me from certain death; if I had tried to breathe in as normal, I would have found that I could not, and I would have tried to force it, which would have caused my lungs to lock up and freeze shut.

I Thank You Jesus Christ for saving me!

Hanukkah is a time when we share the miracles which the Lord Jesus Christ and the Father have done in our lives. This little miracle is one of them.

May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you greatly with your own miracles,

Beware The Principality of Witchcraft

For the last few mornings, January 5th and the 6th, I have woken to a song going through my head, over and over again.

This is not the first time this has happened to me; indeed, it is one of the ways the Lord warns me about something, or wishes to impress something upon me.

The song is ‘Devil Woman’ by Cliff Richard. (1975)

“I’ve had nothing but bad luck
Since the day I saw the cat at my door
So I came into you sweet lady
Answering your mystical call

Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future, the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
And I knew it was a spell she cast

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you…
She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you from behind…

Give me the ring on your finger
Let me see the lines on your hand
I can see me a tall dark stranger
Giving you what you hadn’t planned

I drank the potion she offered me
I found myself on the floor
Then I looked in those big green eyes
And I wondered what I came there for…

If you’re out on a moonlit night
Be careful of them neighborhood strays
Of a lady with long black hair
Trying to win you with her feminine ways

Crystal ball on the table
Show them the future, the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
You’d better get out of there fast…”

It is reported that the singer of this song did not like the original lyrics, and refused to sing them, because it glorified the occult. So the writer changed some of the lines to re-make it into a warning of the occult, and this satisfied the singer enough to record it. He didn’t think it would be a hit at all, but the publisher claimed it would probably end up being a big hit in America. And it was. The singer claimed that the song had even saved a person from getting further into the occult, for this woman listening heard the warning of the song, repented of her witchcraft dealings, and became a follower of Jesus Christ. (http://www.cliffrichardsongs.com/devilwoman/)

This time the Lord impressed upon me, that this was a message to be shared with others, especially with those in America.

He began to remind me, of some of the things I had witnessed lately, and then told me that what I was seeing was not just a local thing, (as I had thought,) but was actually happening all across America.

People are becoming more enthralled with the occult, and some are even beginning to feel its poison.

For example, at a neighborhood gathering, we were told that the man who had purchased the vacant lot next to us (about nine months or so ago,) despite being in really good health, had suddenly come down with some kind of rare incurable form of fast acting cancer, and had died just a short while ago. He had been sick for the past six months. That is why he had not started to build anything yet on the land. The land has remained fallow all these years, because of the curse upon it. No one can seem to hold onto it for long; it is forever changing hands. This man probably had no idea that he had purchased cursed land. Yet it still affected him.

At another gathering, I was explaining to a new neighbor how our land was cursed, how this had affected us, and what we had done to be rid of the evil spirits. But another neighbor rudely interrupted and rolled her eyes at me, stating that she herself had several spirits living with her in her house, but that the spirits were quite friendly. She then insinuated that we must have done something to get the spirits on our land so upset with us. (I did not doubt this; being believers in Jesus Christ is enough alone to upset them.) I soon realized that those listening, were more enthralled by her story, and had no real interest in hearing the rest of my testimony. So I moved on. But it left a sad place in my heart, to see the warm reception this woman got, when she talked about befriending evil spirits.

One of my sons had been dating a girl for a short while, that claimed she was interested in becoming a Christian. The relationship puzzled me, for when he was with her he seemed quite enamored of her. Yet when he was apart from her, he had no interest in her at all. When I went to the Lord with it, He told me to break all witches spells over him, and the next day after doing this, he broke it off with her for good. We then found out later, that she and a friend of hers who was a witch, had placed a spell over my son, to cause him to like her. She never wanted to become a believer. She was already a witch instead.

There is a hotel within an hours drive from us, that is known for its ghost haunting and financial issues and other problems. (It is so cursed that our family can not even get close to the building, without getting dizzy from all the evil spirits.) But instead of blessing the land and casting out the evil spirits, the new owners bought a special ghost kit that one can use if they rent out one of the rooms. These kits supposedly help you to locate and listen to the ghosts. They act as if it is one of the best things to ever happen to the hotel. Sadly, they reported that many are now going there to try and talk to the spirits that reside there. It has become the popular thing to do.

Such evil is not to be scoffed at or played with. It is real, and it is dangerous. And the Lord has told me that America is in danger of becoming caught under its spell.

While in prayer over this, the mystical woman riding the beast of Revelation came to mind. Revelation 17:5 “And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.” Then I remembered, that witchcraft is one of the ‘Mystery’ religions. That meant that the woman riding the beast, could very well be a witch! (Probably not a surprise to you, but it sure was to me.)

Then the Lord revealed to me, that some witches, on the last day of the twelve days of Christmas, this January 5th, placed a spell over the populace of America, releasing demons that would seduce the young people into the occult and turn them away from God.

There is a ruling demon spirit – a principality of witchcraft, that is acting like that ‘devil woman’ in the song. When one first considers the occult, it can seem like a ‘sweet lady’, with its promises of learning hidden knowledge, being able to speak to the dead, converse with ghosts, and in some cases even influence others for a short while. But before long, you will be giving up more than just ‘the ring on your finger’, and you may very well find yourself ‘on the floor’, wondering what happened. Demons don’t always attack you right away; they tend to lie in wait till the timing is perfect, before striking. In the end, you will have gotten ‘what you hadn’t planned’.

Thankfully we don’t need a crystal ball to see what witchcraft and the fascination wit the occult will bring; the scriptures themselves serve as a warning of its poison, and there are many out there who can testify to those end results.

The occult is filled with SICKNESS. The occult is DEATH to anyone practicing it, playing with it, or even touching it in some way. White or black witchcraft makes no difference to God. In His eyes it is all sin. No matter how far you may have gone into it; Jesus Christ of Nazareth can set you free from it. Don’t wait; RUN from it, and into His arms immediately! Tell Him that you now give your life over to Him, and wish to follow His Word and His perfect will. Trust in Him. Read of Him, (like Psalm 91) read His Word out loud for they are your sword against the demons of that ‘evil woman’. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you greatly as you walk with HIM!

Her Imaginary Friend

My kids were in one of their classes at college, where each student had to get up in front of the class, and share with everyone, something that had happened to them in the past, that had completely changed their life.

Well, one of their classmates got up and began to share how her life had changed, when she had first met her imaginary friend in a dream.

This was a girl that both of my kids had seen before, and had felt decidedly uncomfortable around. When one of my kids had first met this girl, he had smiled at her and said “hi,” but the girl had looked right through him and then coldly ignored him. My kid thought she was just being shy, but now began to realize differently. This girl’s imaginary friend, was a demon, and this demon was jealously protecting its host from interacting with any believer.

The girl showed paintings that she had done of her imaginary friend to the classroom, and explained the imaginary world that her imaginary friend lived in. It was all quite detailed and colorful. She was a good artist.

As the girl began to describe her imaginary friend, the demon stood right there next to her.

The girl began to describe in great detail, what her imaginary friend looked like. “He has light blue skin, a pert pigs nose, and has one of its eyes missing. He is…”

At this, the girl paused, searching for words. One of my kids spoke up under his breath, and said “he’s tall!”

And even though there was no way that the girl could have heard him say this, (he was at the back of the room and she at the front,) she said “oh yes! And he’s very tall, standing about ten feet high.”

My son gave a slight nod of agreement.

The girl then said that this imaginary friend changed her life, when she accepted him as a friend, despite his disabilities. She claimed that this imaginary friend taught her not to judge others harshly, but to be accepting of everyone, no matter what their disability.

(Though evidently not so accepting of EVERYONE, given her treatment of my son earlier.)

As this girl went into details of her imaginary friend, the demon stood next to her and ran his own verbal commentary to her words describing him. The demon was full of sarcasm, and laughed at the girl’s duplicity.

The demon was very prideful at how this girl was describing him. When the girl said her friend had dark eyes that held the spark of life in them, the demon laughed mockingly, and said that his eyes actually had the spark of death in them, but that he kept this truth from her.

When the girl described how she was freed from prejudice when she was finally able to accept him with his one eye, the demon said this was when she had accepted HIM into HER life. When this happened, the demon then had a legal right to be in her life. It was clear from this girl’s presentation, that she wanted to keep him in her life, and was not willing to give him up for anything. It had become her very best friend.

It was clear that the demon always held back what he really looked like to the girl, and once again, the demon took great pride in this deception. In reality, this demon was much more like a monster, than a human. Had the girl really been able to see him as he was, my kids doubted she would be so accepting of it.

One of my kids tried to bind it up in the name of Jesus, but all this did, was stop the demon from looking at my kids. The demon simply re-directed its focus towards all the other students sitting there in the classroom.

Finally the girl ended her presentation, and returned to her seat. As she walked by one of my kids, my child pulled in his chair, to make room for the demon to get by him without touching. (The demon was far wider and bigger than the girl.) Then he realized too late, that he didn’t need to do such a thing. (I think he felt a little silly, making room for a spirit that no one else could see.)

My kids felt relieved when the class was over, and they could escape from that snide demon.

*

This has certainly put the topic of ‘imaginary friends’ into a new light for me. I used to think that they were just a harmless coping mechanism for children who for some reason can not handle real life at a specific time in their life. Now I am not so sure. Perhaps some are. But evidently, some are not.

I found it interesting, that the demon used the ‘ prejudice ‘ issue, to force his entry into her life. Even the Most High God does not condone prejudice. Prejudice is a demon that comes from hell, and is closely allied with the demon of hate. But here, satan used something seemingly good and worthy, (not being prejudice,) and twisted it into his own tool of ultimate deception and death.

Psalms 91:11
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

1 John 4:1-3 ESV

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.

Romans 8:5-8 ESV

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

Ephesians 6:10-18 ESV

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

Matthew 12:43-45 ESV

“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, but finds none. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house empty, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there, and the last state of that person is worse than the first. So also will it be with this evil generation.”
